Nintendo Switch owners have been treated to another great exclusive with Splatoon 2 being released on the hit hybrid console in the past few weeks.

And the brightly coloured paintball shooter is already getting a bit of a refresh soon after launch.

Later this week Splatoon 2 players will get a brand new map called the Shifty Station.

However, there’s a catch - it will only be available in the stage rotation during Splatfest events.

Nintendo have said the map’s layout will change between Splatests, which means players will be battling on different version of the map each time.

The inaugural Splatfest for Splatoon 2 will be happening during the first weekend of August.

In Europe, the Splatfest will begin on Saturday August 5 at 3pm BST.

In the US, it will start on August 4 at 9 pm PDT, and will finish on August 5 also at 9 pm PDT.
